TO ALL SAFEGUARDING OFFICERS

 

Unfortunately, we are experiencing some technical difficulties within the Safeguarding ‘Policy and Guidance’ page of the Diocesan website (https://europe.anglican.org/safeguarding/policy-and-guidance).

We have identified two areas of the webpage where many website links aren’t working:

  1. The web friendly versions of the Diocesan Safeguarding Protocol and the Managing Concerns document, accessed by clicking:
  2. ‘Here are the links to the web friendly version’
  3. ‘And a further link to managing concerns’
  4. Within the full versions of the Diocesan Safeguarding Protocol and the Managing Concerns document, listed under the heading:
  5. ‘The full documents are available below in word and pdf versions’.

All links within documents listed under the heading ‘Other useful safeguarding documents for downloading’ appear to be functioning appropriately.

We have reported this and hope that the links will be working again soon, but in the interim please do contact us on 0044 (0)207 898 1150 or via email to europe.safeguarding@churchofengland.org if you need any further information or access to specific documents.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
